Detra and her boyfriend from Ohio were the busiest anglers of the Lady Pamela II sportfishing fleet today. The pair started the day with a nice sailfish catch, and then they hooked into something big. That something turned out to be a 350lb sandbar shark that really put a bend in the rod. It was a thrilling catch and release for the Ohioans, particularly since they were able to make the catch in t-shirts and shorts, rather than parkas!! They also caught four kingfish and a blackfin tuna to round out the day. Good job!

Today the Lady Pamela IV team hosted another group of out-of-towners for some fair weather fishing. Captain Darin headed out into 220 feet of water, about where there had been some mahi-mahi action reported from the previous day. Sure enough, as soon as the baits hit the water, a hungry dolphin hit the line. The angling crew succeeded in landing a nice 18lb mahi-mahi. Not long after the baits were back in, the right rigger popped and the reel started singing. A wahoo had crashed the bait and took off to the races. As is often the case with these speedsters, he made a quick turn toward the boat and was able to throw the hook. Missing the wahoo sure was a disappointment, but the crew got back into the action and finished the day with a few bonitos.
